Shades of Summer

by Hooshang, Khorasani
August 1, 2017 through August 31, 2017

Artis Bio

The Taube Museum of Art Lower Gallery will feature acrylic paintings by internationally exhibited artist Hooshang, Khorasani of Ruston, Louisiana during the month of August. Hooshang’s work reflects a bold contemporary style, with hues alternating between muted and highly energized. His paintings are in acrylic and mixed media, and range from brushwork and washed to work with a palette knife. He paints on canvas, paper and board. His exhibition at the Taube will feature acrylics on museum wrapped canvas.

He says this about his work: “I paint in layers, adding texture, but it’s as if the paint itself takes part in the creative process. I’m the tour guide on the journey, but there’s another participant: My hands are virtually channeled into a universal source of energy. And that energy, in turn pulses through my brushes and artists tools.”

“Indeed the common theme for all my works is energy – energy in nature and the world around me, in moving colors that show power, in the inner life of my subjects. I seek to unveil the mysteries and beauties of the universe.”

Hooshang’s career began early – when a newspaper published one of his drawings at age 7. Enrollment in an arts-centered high school followed, then college and a BFA in painting. Hooshang is also an award-winning illustrator of children’s books. Since 1984, he has worked as a self-employed artist in America and on the Mediterranean cost in Spain. His paintings are displayed in private collections in Europe and across the United States as well as in several corporate collections, and several permanent museum collections.

Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts. The exhibition is made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.

This summer one of our awnings was damaged during the road construction work going on downtown.  Unfortunately, replacing only the one that was damaged is not an option due to normal wear and tear of the other awnings.>>
